The Faculty s Vacation
(With Apologies to Rudyard Kipling)
When Tubman's last day is over, and the rooms are dusted and swept,
When the oldest Seniors departed, and the youngest Freshman has left.
We shall rest — and, faith, we shall need it — go off for a camp or a trip.
Till next fall Mr. Garrett doth call each to pack her grip.
And we who were wise will be foolish; we shall sit in a light canoe.
Go fishing, crabbing and dancing and often picnicing, too ;
We shall find our rest and refreshment 'mid mountains and pine trees tall,
We shall play all the livelong summer and never get tired at all.
And no more the students will praise us, or rather no more will they blame;
We will stop taking life seriously, and start treating it as a game.
And each in the joy of vacation — Whether by mountain or sea —
Will forget the past and the future in delight with "things as they be."

The Class of Nineteen-Twenty
We're the class of nineteen-twenty
From the good old Tubman High.
We're nearly thru with lessons and
The end is drawing nigh.
We are fifty-four in number, and
Many are the things we've learned;
Great were cur fears and struggles
When our dear old school was burned.
Sophomore year we were frozen out,
For great was the shortage of coal;
So, patriotically, we shivered while
We thought of the distance to our goal.
Junior year we were full of fear
For the "flu" had shut us out.
And so far away was our Senior year
That to graduate was in doubt.
But we've studied hard thru every struggle.
And now great is our fame;
We've even found time for basketball
And we've won 'most every game.
And now^ v^^e are great Seniors,
And old Tubman is so dear
_ That, strange as it may seem to you.
We regret that the end is near.
But even though v^'e're nearly through
We know we've done our best.
To make our dear new Tubman
A pride for all the rest.
But alas! amid tears and joyous cries
The end is almost here.
And the class of nineteen-twenty
Will be but a memory dear.

WAS lying in the hammock on the porch of my cottage at the
seashore. (I, now Mme. Wise, the permanent hair waver,
was taking a rest at this quiet summer resort.) The tide was
low and there were few^ waves. Glancing seav^ard I saw a
strange looking object moving over the surface of the water.
As it drew nearer, I decided it must be a submarine. By this
time part of the body could be seen. It was evident that it
was headed for the nearest dock. 1 arose from the hammock and ran down
to the beach, but 1 did not make much progress on account of the hundred
and fifty additional pounds that 1 had gained since my high school days.
At last I reached the dock to find that the sub. was already fastened to the
pier and a man and woman w^ere disembarking. As I drew nearer, the
face of the woman looked very familiar, but it was not until she smiled and
ran to meet me that 1 recognized my old school-mate, Annie Murray. She
then introduced me to her husband, v^fhom 1 readily recognized as a noted
athlete v^^hom I had read about. It w^as strange that Annie recognized me
as I had grown rather stouter. I remarked about this, but she laughed and
said that she had heard of my ill-fate from Ruth Bishop vi^ho was a traffic
cop on a United States patrol boat stationed in mid-ocean and who had
"pulled" her for speeding. How like Ruth! 1 thought. She still liked to
have her own way. Annie said that Ruth came on board her sub., and
talked about old school days. Ruth told Annie that one afternoon just
before twilight, seeing one of the newly-invented boats for crossing the ocean
in three days dash by her boat, breaking all speed laws, she w^as obliged to
call a halt to it, and w^hom do you suppose she savs' on deck? None other
than Elizabeth Maddox. She asked Ruth on board for a chat, and ex-
plained that she was on her way home for a vacation after spending years
of hard work in China as a missionary. Elizabeth showed her some chop-
sticks and souvenirs that she was taking back to the U. S. A. 1 remembered
Elizabeth's hobby in T. H. S.
I then asked Annie and her husband to come on up to my cottage for
tea. When w^e arrived there, they explained that they w^ere touring the world
and begged me to join them on a trip to New York. 1 didn't need much
coaxing, so 1 hurriedly packed my things and we were soon off. hi a short
while we reached our destination.
As we were disembarking at New York, a large, masculine-looking person
came rapidly toward us. She quickly demanded our passports. The voice
seemed very familiar, and looking more closely 1 recognized Pearl Cohen, now
an immigration officer.
We had time before lunch to do a little shopping, so Annie and 1 left
the masculine member of our party at the hotel while we performed our
mission. As we walked up Fifth Avenue, my attention was suddenly drawn
to a large electric sign extending over the sidewalk. Here is what 1 read:
"Mme. Walter's Perfect-fitting Gown Shop." "Surely that can't be our old
classmate, Ethel," said Annie.
"Let's go in and see, " 1 suggested. When we entered, the first person
that met my eyes was Ethel strolling around displaying one of the perfect-
fitting gowns. Can you imagine it? As soon as the informal greeting was
over, she begged us to sit down and rest awhile. We, of course, started
talking about our former school-mates. 1 asked her if she knew anything
about any of them. "Oh, yes, " she said, "Thelma Prescott is head nurse
at Bellevue Hospital. I suppose you know that Elizabeth Henry married a
prosperous farmer of South Carolina. "
Looking at my watch, I saw that it was time to meet Annie's husband
for lunch. As we made our way down the crow^ded street a little new^sboy
ran up and thrust a paper before me. I purchased it to read. After lunch,
when I unfolded it, much to my amazement the headlines read, "New
Species of Frog Discovered, " and below^ this "Professor E. Weathersbee
Makes Most Brilliant Discovery of the Day." Could this noted Professor
of Biology.be Evelyn? "Wonders never cease," I thought to myself. In
turning the pages quite an unusual poem attracted me. After reading it, I
looked to see who the poet was — but, alas, it w^as a poetess, and none other
than Nancy Wright.
That afternoon, while we were out sight-seeing, our attention was drawn
to a crowd of people who w^ere cheering and pitching their hats into the air.
We drew nearer to see what the commotion v/as about and then w^e found
Augusta von Sprecken and Margaret Montgomery, standing on soap boxes,
gesticulating to the surrounding crowd. We paused for a moment to see
what they were talking about. Each was trying to convince the throng that
her new scientific discovery— a substance that would turn sa%vdust into gold
— was the best. Neither could out-argue the other; consequently, the crowd
dispersed without buying either.
Going home after the theater that evening, we passed a noted cabaret.
Nothing would do Annie's husband but to stop there for a while. We walked
in and took a seat. In a fev/ minutes the lights were turned off everywhere
except on the stage. A tiny bell boy came dancing out, and down the steps
to our very table. 1 gasped with surprise as I recognized Dorothy Levy.
I thought how strangely Fate mocks us. She stopped and chatted a while,
and I asked her if she knew the where-abouts of any of our school-mates.
She said that she knew of only one, Dorothy Brill, who was a school teacher
in a nearby town.
The next morning we arose early so that we might go to see a famous
world-known spiritualist who acted as medium between this w^orld and the
spirit-world. As she was very popular, w^e were anxious to interview her
before so many people gathered there to consult her. Our taxi stopped
before a beautiful home in Brooklyn. We got out and went up the big
marble stairs and were ushered into a spacious living-room, elegantly fur-
nished. The door leading into the next room, from which mysterious sounds
issued, had been left half open. We glanced in. It was a weird, "spooky"
looking place. A little woman with a soft voice sat at a table. Across from
her sat a little old man with grey hair. She was telling him excitedly about
some departed spirit that lived on the fourth dimension. Who could they
be? We were not long kept in suspense, for they arose and came to the
door. Could I be dreaming? There before my eyes stood Verlie Whitlock.
the famous spiritualist, and Mr. Stemple, our former chemistry teacher and
a confirmed hater of spiritualists.
We returned to the hotel about 1 2 o'clock for lunch, and the first thing
I did was to stop by the office to see if there was any mail. The clerk handed
me a large envelope which 1 immediately recognized as some of my business
stationery. I opened it and saw that it was from the girl that I had left in
charge of my business. She advised me to return as soon as possible as a
certain Miss Vonita Hiers was opening a beauty parlor and was specializing
on permanent waves. I thought if this were the same Vonita that went
to Tubman, that I certainly had better return, for I knew that she would
surely put me out of business if she still had the wave that she had while in
Just as I was finishing iny letter, some one hit me on the back and said,
"Why, hello, what are you doing here?" I turned quickly, and there before
me stood Mabel Claire Speth, dressed as an aviatrix. I asked her what she
was doing there. "Why," she said, "I brought the famous suffragist. Hazel
Mertins, over from England to make a speech in New York. She is one
of the staunchest suffragists in the world, and has been touring the old country
making addresses." I was not at all surprised at this, as I remembered how
she had practiced on us in T. H. S. I then told Mabel that I had been called
home on business. "Good!" she said, "I'm going that way myself. Ill
give you a 'lift.' " I bade my friends good-bye and prepared for my trip
with Mabel. When we were well on our way I asked Mabel if she kne^v
the fate of any of the class of nineteen-twenty. "Oh, yes, " she answered,
"Frances Parker is a popular society matron in Atlanta. I suppose you
know of Bessie Sandler's fame as an artist?"
I replied in the affirmative, for I had seen her masterpiece while I was
in New^ York. "Let me tell you something funny that happened the other
day," I said. "As I was going down one of the streets in New York, this
sign caught my eye: "Come in and learn how to blush. Guarantee to re-
fund money if not satisfied.' 1 couldn't resist the temptation, so 1 walked
in, and who do you suppose was the instructor? It was no other than Edna
Ingram. 1 remembered her numerous variety of blushes in T. H. S., and
knew that she must be a success, so I paid for a few lessons in advance."
Just then the machine began to wobble, and 1 was greatly frightened.
"What's the matter? Is there too much weight in here? " I asked in one
breath. "No." said Mabel, "I don't know what's wrong, but we'll have to
land. Fortunately, we're over Philadelphia. " So we landed and she gave
the machine the "once over, " finding that she would have to get a newr
part for it. As it would be the next day before we could start again, we
consequently made our w^ay to the hotel. When we entered the lobby, 1
saw a familiar figure which I immediately recognized as Frances Tucker.
She told us that she was manager for that hotel, and was doing a rushing
businers owing to the appetizing meals they served, which were prepared by
Mary Printup. So Mary couldn't get very far from anything to eat. It's
a wonder that there were any profits if Mary still had the appetite that she
possessed at Tubman, 1 thought.
I then v^ent up to my room to rest a while. On the table I found a
book of poems that some one had evidently left behind in a hurried departure.
Out of sheer curiosity 1 picked the volume up and glanced through it. Much
to my amazement I saw that it was a collection of poems written by Marie
Sumerau. Could this be another of my old class-mates? Yes, indeed, for
on looking more closely 1 saw that the first poem had been dramatized by
Annie Lee Cannon, Maude Grealish being the heroine. This promised to
be interesting, so 1 read on and found that Olga Hargrove played the part of
the comedian and Ethel Hitt had been the scenery painter. I remembered
their talents in dear old Tubman, and v^as quite confident that they had been
By this time I was quite rested, so 1 put on my hat and strolled uptown
to see if I could find a dress to wear to the theater that evening. 1 passed
a show window that displayed several beautiful gowns for stout women, so
I vjrent in. I asked to see the manager, and when she appeared, who do
you suppose it was? Isabelle Garrett, of course. We chatted for a while
about old school days, and then 1 noticed a handsome model, w^ith a most
becoming sport suit on, vs^alking around in the rear of the store. She seemed
strangely familiar, but I couldn't place her. I turned to ask "Izzy " about
her, when I noticed that the model was smiling. "Why, don't you recognize
her?" asked Isabelle. "That's Ida Masur. She's still handsome as ever.
I bet you don't know v^rho the customer is. " 1 looked, but as she had her
back turned I didn't recognize her. "That's Taffy' Card looking at the
sport suit. She now holds the world's tennis championship." I vj^as not
surprised at this, for she was such an expert player in T. H. S. "You re-
member Sarah Poliakoff? " "Izzy " went on. "Well, she is my bookkeeper,
and is considered one of the best in town." We had talked so long that I
had to leave before buying my dress in order to meet Mabel and fulfill our
engagement at the beauty parlor.
While 1 was standing on the corner waiting for Mabel, a shriek, half of
terror, half of pain, sounded sharply in my ears. 1 turned quickly in the
direction from which the cry came. Much to my horror, 1 saw a little child,
who had been knocked down by a speeding runabout, lying on the pave-
ment, apparently dead. A crovs^d had gathered almost instantly and out of
the throng stepped a doctor and nurse who happened to be passing when the
accident occurred. When the doctor removed her hat, 1 recognized Lillie
Smith. Marian Haynie was the nurse who gently cared for the child.
Just then Mabel Claire came up and we set out for the beauty parlor.
On arriving there, Mabel left me and went into another room to have her
hair dressed while 1 waited for the manicurist to appear. In a few minutes
Fannie Paltrowitch came in and announced that she w^as the manicurist. She
sat down and began what seemed to her a hopeless job, all the w^hile talking
about old Tubman days. "Do you know^ what has become of any of '20's
class?" I asked her. "Oh, yes," she responded in her familiar voice, "Annie
Goldstein is the best stenographer in town. She works for the largest de-
partment store here." 1 asked her if she knew what had become of Irma
Mitchell, and if she was still going to the dentist. "Why, Irma was up here
a few days ago, and told us the glad news that she didn't have to go to the
dentist any more or w^ear poultices for days at a time, for she now had an
entirely new set of teeth, guaranteed never to hurt." 1 laughed, as 1 re-
membered Irma's poultices.
Mabel Claire then bounced into the room and said, "Oh, 1 have a sur-
prise for you. Guess whom I've found! " Then she dragged Lucile Beatse,
the noted hair-dresser, out of the adjoining room. 1 was dumfounded.
"We've been talking about by-gone school days, " Mabel announced, "and
Lucile told me that Anita Hodo despaired of ever marrying and had settled
down with all her pets and w^as making a living by knitting sweaters for the
'Ladies' Exchange.' Can you imagine Anita not marrying? You remember
Marguerite McEween? Lucile says she's married, and lives on a farm not
far from here." So Marguerite preferred feeding chickens to the gay life of
That evening we dolled up in our "glad rags" and journeyed forth to
the theater, fully expecting to be bored to death. No sooner were vs^e
seated than the curtain rose. Glancing hurriedly at the program, 1 saw that
the first number was a selection on the piano by a Mme. Louise Ellaso, one of
the greatest musicians and composers of the day. Just then a short, stout
woman w^obbled out on the stage and sat dow^n at the piano. She began
by playing a lively march. 1 noticed the player's left foot which constantly
bobbed up and down in time with the music. Mabel nudged me and asked,
"Whom does that remind you of? It makes me homesick for Tubman. " I
examined the program again, and, putting two and two together, and making
Louise Ellas out of it, 1 imparted my secret to Mabel. As soon as the per-
formance w^as over, we rushed around to the stage door to see Louise. What
a meeting it w^as, tool She told us that w^hen she grevir tired of entertaining
others with her splendid art that she ran away to a little country town and
opened a store at which the school boys and girls might buy cakes and
chocolate bars. There she dreamed of old Tubman days.
Next morning found Mabel and me on our journey again. "Since
we've seen so many Tubmanites on our trip, I've become very anxious to see
Tubman once more, " 1 said.
"Let's stop and go through it," said Mabel, "and see if it's changed
much since 1920. " Of course, 1 agreed, and we began to descend. When
we landed, a reporter ran up to find out w^ho we w^ere. As soon as she
came close enough we recognized Dorothy Egbert, reporter for The Herald.
She took us to town in her "flivver" and "dropped " us at Broad and Jackson
Streets. We walked up to Ninth Street. There we found Hortense Mintz,
wearing large smoked glasses, and playing a violin for dear life. How sorry
we were to see that Hortense had lost her eyesight! We went up to speak
to her, but when we were only a foot or two away, she greatly surprised us
with: "Hello, Sports! So glad to see you, but 1 can't take off my 'specks'
here. Come around to the house tonight and we'll have a big time.
I then bought a newspaper and we caught the first car for Tubman.
When we were comfortably seated, I divided the paper with Mabel and we
searched for Augusta news. Mabel, who had the first sheet, suddenly ex-
claimed, "Just look! Mary Ashe is editor-in-chief. She has evidently
profited by her experience in Tubman." "Oh, isn't this exciting?" 1 cried,
'Secrets of Love,' by Bessie White. Who would have thought it?"
"Here's a description of Mary McElmurray's wedding," said Mabel.
Yes, 1 remembered the diamond she wore at Tubman. She said her father
gave it to her. Oh! well — that's what they all say. "But look," 1 cried, in
my turn, "at this advertisement: 'Miss Aimee Robinson, best jazz teacher
in town; expert on all new steps. Music furnished by the Blitchington
"All out for Tubman!" We jumped up and got off quickly. Slowly
we made our way up the walk, taking in all the familiar surroundings. We
were greeted at the door by Gladys Luquire, who told us that she was Ruth
Fund's stenographer, who in turn had succeeded Mr. Garrett as principal,
but had recently sent in her resignation. She w^ore a solitaire on her left
hand, and it was rumored that she was busily embroidering "C's" on table
linen. You can judge the rest for yourself.
Gladys showed us over the school. Everything was the same, except
for a few improvements. As we passed down the second floor hall, 1 fully
expected to see Miss Flisch standing at the head of the stairs with her "Keep
to the right, girls," but instead a little blonde woman was in her place. So
Lillian Cheval had followed in Miss Flisch's footsteps.
As we passed the Commercial room, 1 glanced in and on the desk I
saw a large picture of Miss Mattox. 1 immediately looked for Lulie, for 1
knew that she must surely be somewhere near. Sure enough there was she,
for now Lulie was head of the commercial department.
"Come down and take a look at the gym, " Gladys suggested. 1 was
surprised to find that Gladys Matthews was now the teacher in this depart-
ment. She showed us the new conveniences and improvements, the greatest
of which was the large, snowy-white pool, the delight of the student body.
"Look how clear it is," Gladys said. "You can see this dime on the bottom
when I drop it." 1 leaned over to watch for the dime, w^hen suddenly I
lost my footing and fell in with a great splash. 1 wiped the water from my
eyes and opened them. Where wras 1? The moon was shining brightly and
the tide had risen to the porch of my cottage. I looked up. The hammock
was swinging vigorously. So that explained it. 1 had been dreaming for
the last tw^o hours and in my excitement had fallen out of the hammock,
which was hung near the edge of the porch, into the water. 1 forgot to
mention that I had lobster salad for supper.

and influence. Also our various privileges and our present realization that
being a Senior verifies the proverb, "All that glitters is not gold. "
To Irene Jackson, Annie Murray leaves her ""gym " talents and her pro-
fessional qualities as captain of numerous teams.
Clarice Wise bequeaths her permanent wave and patented giggle to
Verlie Whitlock leaves to Mary Ferguson her As and A + 's, which were
given to her at every wink of the eye.
To Belle Walker, Ruth Fund leaves her art of presiding over frequent
Mabel Claire Speth leaves to Deryl Clark her business-like ability, which
talent was displayed on every occasion and was tried in the fiery furnace
during the drive for Annual subscriptions.
Remembering the maxim: ""He that hath, let him give to him who
hath not,"' Edna Ingram leaves her frequent blushes to Polly Watson. In
draw^ing up this document, we request that Polly have one brand of blushes
patented, that is, the brand Edna uses when she misses her history.
Ethel Hitt bequeaths her artistic ability to Minnie Goldie Fell, hoping
that Minnie will never have to pose, without compensation, for so many art
posters as did Ethel.
Fannie Paltrow^itch leaves to Edna Maxwell her oratorical powers in
delivering a history report. May Edna from now on prize and make use
of this splendid endowment, thereby relieving her mind of numberless ex-
cuses and thus lightening the hearts of her teachers.
To any unfortunate Junior, Gladys Luquire bequeaths the position of
her name in the middle of the history class roll the mere fact that her
name stood in said position offered sufficient excuse to use it always as a
good starting point.
Louise Ellas leaves her position as Tubman pianist to Martha Wall.
She would bequeath also her habit of patting her left foot to said Martha,
but, as such is impossible, it is useless to try to draw up a legal document
The First Senior Hockey Team leaves its hard-earned and long-worked-
for championship to the First Junior Team. Accompanying this gift are many
bruises inflicted by ruthless opponents.
The Seniors of the Glee Club leave vacant places and, in bequeathing
them to favored members of the Junior Class, we hope that they who fall
heir to this heritage will derive as much pleasure and delight from their
Thursday afternoon rehearsals as did the Seniors of 1920.
It is with the greatest respect and the deepest admiration for the present
Faculty that we now bequeath that honored body to the under-classmen. We
leave these teachers to all the classes inclusively, but only for the term of
their natural high school life. We hand down to them the exclusive right
to these our instructors, favorites or otherwise.
After due deliberation we leave to any girl in the Junior Class who is
bright enough to decipher them all of Mr. Stemple's Laboratory note-book
We devise and bequeath our Senior Class room, number 23, to the
Juniors, believing that they will appreciate the four brilliant electric lights
which have afforded much enjoyment to several Seniors during the past
year. Along with this gift go the many luxurious seats, now calmly awaiting
their future occupants.
To the Class of '21 we hand dow^n the many golden opportunities lost
during our four years at Tubman, hoping that said class will have fewer to
bequeath to the class of '22.
With hearts full of love and gratitude to our beloved principal, we be-
queath him and his polka dot tie to all under-classmen. May every Tubman
girl prize and appreciate his thoughtfulness and interest which have been
manifested ever since his first year at Tubman.
We leave to all Freshmen our heartfelt sympathy and appreciation of
all their trials and hardships.
We, the Seniors of 1920, pledge our undying love and unv/avering
devotion to our Alma Mater. At this time when signs of dissolution are
at hand, we, the Senior Class of 1920, devise and bequeath said beloved
Alma Mater to all girls of Augusta of high school age. That part of our
interest we give to them for future generations, hoping that in later years
they will regard her with the same loyal pride and sincere appreciation as
we do, the departing Seniors of 1920.

Farewell To Seniors
Seniors, Seniors, soon you'll leave us, leave us Ah! to graduate.
Graduation days are coming; glorious, thrilling, happy fete.
No more running for the street car; no more getting up at dawn:
No more basket-ball at Tubman; no more tennis on the lawn.
Ah! You Seniors, how you've scared us with your talk of studies hard.
Just the same we will forgive you, for your books you'll soon discard.
Think, O Seniors, what you're leaving — leaving us to take your place —
Leaving all your days of school work and your record-breaking pace.
But departing, leave behind you as you onward, forward go, —
Leave us that deep secret. Seniors, how you win the teachers so.
Will us, too, the charming manner that you bluff the Freshmen with;
That impressive dignity you mingle with your pep and pith.
Think, O Seniors, whom you're leaving, must you leave us far behind?
Yes. Tis plain vfe cannot keep you, though we w^ish Fate were more kind.
Think, O Seniors, what you're leaving — ghosts of girlhood gaieties.
Days when joy was ever present; hosts of Tubman memories.
But 'tis life that calls you onward; and we, here, the chorus swell —
"Fare thee well. If so it must be, then it must be; fare thee w^ell."

Sophomore Class History
S IT would take volumes to relate all concerning the Class ol
1922, it is deemed wise to mention only a few facts, which
are self-evident. The first most obvious fact is that this is
an unusually bright looking bunch of girls, and as they stand
at the beginning of the rough and stormy pathway leading
to the great "Hall of Fame,"' there is no doubt but that all of
their names will be inscribed upon its walls.
It was a memorable day in September, 1918, that the Class of 1922
made its first appearance at Tubman. Our hopes were high, our spirits
higher, and nothing, — not even the Sophomore's cutting remarks — could
mar the happiness of that day. We wfere a friendly, good-natured, optimistic
class, and our ambition was to walk off with as many honors as possible,
with as little work as possible. That w^e have secured the honors will be
testified to, by, — well, everybody except the Faculty.
Of course, every truly great organization has its "ups and downs," and
the Class of '22 has been no exception. Our Freshman work was inter-
rupted twice on account of the "Flu, " not to mention the appearance of a
new Latin teacher at regular intervals of every two months. (That is one
of the many reasons why Miss Dora loses so much sleep on account of this
So far the Class of '22 has not really revealed to the world its won-
ful ability in athletics. In fact, our class team has never won a single game
of basket ball or hockey! However, we have not the slightest doubt but
that the elements of greatness are in us, as we are fully convinced that it
was due to the magnificent work on the part of our representatives, namely
— Agee, Branch and Daniels, that the game with Waynesboro was such an
As 'we will have to stop some time, it might as well be novv^, leaving
volumes to remain untold about the class whose triumphs and successes will
be renewed with greater and greater luster in the time to come. Look out
for the Class of 1922, which has only been introduced in this brief sketch.
They will some day make their mark in the world.

ERE we are Freshmen with four long dreary years of grind
ahead of us. I wonder if v\re"ll ever live through it? It
certainly doesn't seem so. Every one teases us and calls us
"Little Greenies," but anyway we are not at the very bottom
as the Sub-freshman have taken that responsibility. This
year seems so long and just to think of three more!
Just to imagine being Sophomores is a little more encouraging because
we will not be Freshmen at any rate, and we'll have a little higher aim in life.
But better still Juniors! Our class basket-ball team will be victorious
over all the other classes and some of us will make the Varsity. It will be
wonderful until we think of going home and studying. Something seems
to always take the joy out of life.
We can hardly realize that we v^fill ever be real Seniors. Its so far off.
But maybe we will some day. It must be a glorious feeling to know that
next year we can do almost anything we want to and won't have any school
to interfere. But when we come to think about it we would hate to leave
eld Tubman and how we v^^ould miss our old school-mates and the good
times we used to have. I suppose, after all, the happiest days of our lives
are when v^e are little Freshmen at Tubman.

What's A Sub ?
OW the Seniors say that nothing from nothing leaves a sub,
but that's just where they are ■wrong. When we first came
here they used to laugh and say, "Oh, look at the little Subbies,
they always get lost betw^een classes!" Of course, we didn't
get lost, we were just looking around to see how we liked
the school. Anybody could have seen that. Why I've even
heard them say, "Tubman is just like a kindergarten now! "
And they groaned and fussed so you w^ould think w^e -were as bad as the
measles. Of course, we do break out occasionally.
What's a Sub? Well, now, you just listen! When October marks
came out didn't we have six ""Subs" on the Honor Roll! What about that?
Then 'we started playing basket-ball, and one day Miss Ruland put us up
against the Juniors and the score stood 18-22 in favor of the Juniors. But
just notice how near together those numbers come. And did you ever say
"Sub " to a Sophomore? They begin to groan and turn red immediately;
that's 'cause they are so tired being told the "Subs " are better than they
are Ha! They can laugh at us, but those same "Sophs " and Juniors better
be careful, for we are Freshmen next year.
Oh, yes, what is a Sub? Why w^e have more members than any other
class; ■we almost beat the Juniors in basket-ball; we have a class Glee Club,
and the teachers all love us; in fact, we are the very center of things at

Dear Miss Ruland:
Friday we motored down to Bateville and basket-balled all
afternoon. Then we tead for an hour. After that we trained
back to Sing Sing and booked til dawn; then we went to sleep
and Saturdayed that way.
Yesterday we trolleyed to town and picture-showed and
soda-watered until dark. That night we conglomerated in
Emma's room and pokered until morning.
To-day we horsed down to the pecan grove and nutted
all morning. This afternoon our bugology class locomoted
up to Lunville Hill and insected for two hours.
We footed it back to school and dinnered until we had
had enough; after which we pianoed until the door belled.
We jazzed to cur rooms and rocsted til the clock sevened.

HE Athletic Association, as its name implies, deals with all
competitions in Athletics of the school. The Association has
just come into existence this year, but, judging from its suc-
cessful beginning, we are certain that it wll continue to grow.
The election of the officers of the Athletic Association takes
place in January of each year. The president is chosen from
the Senior Class.; the vice-president from the Junior Class;
secretary from the Sophomore Class, and the treasurer from the Freshman
Class. One girl is also chosen as a representative of the Sub-Freshman Class.
The purpose of the Association is to raise the standard of the school,
and also to promote greater team spirit. The former is accomplished by
this ruling, that no one will be eligible to play on the school or class team,
who fails to pass in any one subject at the mid-year examinations or in her
daily recitations. The latter is accomplished by having four teams from each
class in Hockey and Basket-ball. This gives all the girls a chance to make
some team and to realize the meaning of team spirit.
The Athletic Council consists of all the officers of the Athletic Associa-
tion; a member of the Faculty, the Physical Director with her assistant,
and the Principal. This Council shall present all letters and numerals to
those girls winning same and may withhold any letter or numeral which it
deems the w^inner unworthy of wearing.

HIS year has been an epoch of new events at Tubman. The
most important of these is the fact that Mr. Garrett has finally
allowed us to have inter-school basket-ball games. The first
of these games was played with Waynesboro, and as we were
inexperienced at the game we were S. G., as the saying is at
Tubman. But in spite of the fact we were victorious in all
In the game with Ashley Hall the teams were more evenly matched,
and the game was very exciting from the first. We intend to play the return
game with Ashley Hall at Charleston, the twenty-first of March.
We also have a game scheduled to play the Savannah High School some
time in the near future. Every one is looking forward to this event with
The Inter-Class Hockey Tournament was won by the first Seniors over
the Fourth Freshmen; the score was 6 to 0. The Seniors will receive letters
and the Freshmen numerals.
Another interesting event to take place in the Spring is the Swimming
Meet. Through the efforts of Mr. Garrett and Miss Ruland, we have se-
cured the use of the Y. W. C. A. pool every Friday afternoon for two
hours. Miss Ruland, who is in charge of the swimming classes, devotes
the first hour to the beginners, and the second to the more experienced swim-
mers. The preliminary meet was held in February. This was to give us an
idea of what the real meet will be like. There are to be contests for form
swimming and some for speed swimming. Judging from the way the pre-
liminary meet came out, there is going to be a great deal of competition in
the final meet.

Miss Evelyn Barnes, an American girl, born in Japan, and whose parents
die of fever, is brought up as a Japanese maiden. Her father's secretary
uses her property for his o^wn ends. When Evelyn, known as Cherryblossom,
is about eighteen, Worthington (the secretary) returns to Japan on his yacht
with a party of American friends. One of them, John Smith, falls in love
with Cherry and wishes to marry her, but Kokemo, who has brought her
up as his own daughter, wishes her to marry Togo, a rich politician. The
action of the piece centers around Jack's effort to outwit Togo and Kokemo.
Eventually Cherry learns her true identity, comes into her own property,
marries Jack, and all ends happily. The music is catchy, the hit of the
play being the song "Cherryblossom."

Act I — A formal drawing room in Rose McCloud's city home.
Act II — A garden on Rose McCloud's country estate.
Time — The present. One month elapses between acts.
Rose McCloud, the most popular young society belle of her time, is bored with
her artificial existence. An endless round of festivities and a maddening procession of
adoring debutantes, newspaper interviewers, charity and reform leaders seeking her
financial support, dress makers, milliners, etc., drive her to distraction. There w^as but
one relief in Rose's life, and that was when in the company of Alvine Grey, a charming
young society idler, but somewhat different from the other men she had met. But now
he was going aw^ay forever and live out of her sight. Having achieved great success
in society theatricals, Rose decides to go on the stage, and is desirous of obtaining the
leading role in a play by Lady Grey, an eccentric woman playwright. Much to her
amazement and disappointment, Lady Grey flatly refuses to consider her for the part,
and will not even grant her an interview. In utter disgust she decides to go to the
country as just a plain rustic girl.
The second part takes place at Rose's country estate, where she is thoroughly en-
joying the simple life of a country girl. One day she makes friends with a nice old
country lady who lives next door, who after a time turns out to be Lady Grey. She
informs Rose that her son is returning home for a visit the following day, and she is
very anxious for Rose to meet him. On the following day Lady Grey comes over with
her son who turns out to be Alvine. When Lady Grey discovers the true identity of
Rose, she promises her the desired role in the play; also Rose promises Alvine something,
and all ends happily.
"Mister Tom, sir-
The voice came from a short, fat, little woman standing at the threshold.
Her substantial figure was silhouetted by the bright light in the hall behind
her as she stood facing the dim library whose only light came from the glow-
ing logs in the big fireplace.
The reply came, veiled in smoke, from the depths of a huge arm-chair.
"Yes, Katie — you're going tonight, then, are you? 1 don't know what will
become of me without you; I'll never be able to find anything. Why must
you desert me after all these years?"
"No^v, Mistef Tom, sir, sure you're not begrudging me the fine husband
I'm getting, aire ye, sir? I'm that sorry to be leaving you this sudden-like,
but it's like jam tarts, sir, this marrying. The time to take husbands is whin
they're going past."
"Well, well, Katie, that's not bad at all — I rather think you're right
about that. Here I am a poor old man used to having his nice fire made,
his slippers toasting before it, everything done for him. Oh, you've petted
me, Katie; why you've made me wear over-shoes until now I'm miserable
whenever there is a heavy dew if I'm not gum-booted. "
"And it's worrying I'll be about me poor Mister Tom. But ye're not
old, sir. Lissen to the man — old! and you not thirty-six, sir! I'd be aisy in
me mind if I could be knowing some nice, pretty young lady was coming to
be your wife."
"There again, Katie, we have your theory of 'jam tarts.'
"I'll be going now, sir. 'Twill be that odd not to be doing for ye
every day now. You've been a foine, good master to me. Good-bye,
Mister Tom, dearie, ye'll take care of yourself, sir, for old Katie's sake, won't
"You've been too good to me, Katie, and 1 wish you every happiness
in your marriage. Come back some time to see me, will you? "
"And that 1 will, sir, and be glad to. Good-bye and God bless you, sir."
They were standing before the fire. It was only after she turned her
back that she cautiously wiped away a tear; and it was only after her
back was turned that a sort of helpless look came into his eyes. At the door
she looked back.
"Mister Tom, sir '
"Ye — ye' 11 be rememberin' your rubber shoes in the morning, sir, and,
indeed, all the time. It's raining now. Good-bye, sir."
So old Katie was to be married — and for a second time. Humph, she
must have liked it. Bum business, though, for a man — always dangerous.
Funny things, women! These were the thoughts that passed through his
mind as he sank deeper into his chair by the fire.
Strange he hadn't married, anyway. He pursued the same line of
thought, old cynic that he was. Here he was tied down in London by
business — his mother up in the north at Bayberry Bend for his father's health.
They stayed there and he stayed here, alone. Now if he had asked Ruth
at one time she might have had him, but, worse luck, he hadn't wanted
to ask her; quite nice girl, though, very. And Maizie, why she almost chased
him (conceited dog that he was), but she did! Fine girl but for that!
Somehow he vaguely reminded himself of the "Bachelor" in "Reveries of a
Then there was Peggy. Ah! Peggy, who lived just across the way.
Why hadn't he played up to her more? It was seven years ago when he
rode horseback so much and she golfed. She wouldn't ride — wouldn't try,
even (pure meanness, he had thought). A mere incident now, but then
how they had quarreled over it. He wrouldn't golf if she wouldn't ride,
and she, just as firm. But even when he knew^ her best he hadn't dared
to speak of love and w^eddings. Somehow she aw^ed, yet fascinated him.
Still she was rather mean about the riding — quite mean, in fact. Yet, why
should he care now? Lord! the last time he'd ridden had been ages ago,
and now he had no time. Young people think of these little insignificant
things that aren't character, that are only on the surface — "sijeunesse savait"
— she no longer played golf much ; but no matter — he wondered — he was
more tolerant now. Maybe she, too — ridiculous, why a man from Hamp-
shire was most attentive now, a frequent visitor. She didn't seem dread-
fully interested, but one couldn't tell — what if !
He jumped up. In the hall he found his hat, and as he opened the
door a cool rain confronted him. His overshoes — where in the devil had
Katie put them?
"Oh! botheration; no need for overshoes to run across the street. "
JUDITH FARRELL, '21.
To Our Flunkers
Here's to all the "Flunkers" who took the test, but failed!
It was your lot, your fate was "sot,"
Vour happiness was quailed !
The teacher's teachings resulted not — less pity did they give —
The things they said went thru your head
Like water thru a sieve!
Miss Ruland "sat " upon you hard, and calmly up and said,
"If 1 had known your brains were gone
You'd have stayed at home instead."
Ah, hapless, happenings happen often as in this case, we find
That what we knew, just got the "flu "
And made us fall behind!
But here's to all you "Flunkers" — just show those teachers "red" — !
And make them say, "You've won the day " — but

papers gave Miss Ruland the credit, and I'm sure none of us begrudge her
that much praise.
Could anyone ever forget Mabel Claire, hauling furniture in the Red
Cross truck with the leaking top? If you have ever taken a ride in that
truck, you will probably wonder if the furniture was recognizable by the
time it reached its destination.
The first act introduces to us all the main characters, and w^e discover
that the newly-rich Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Henry Smith-Morton have very am-
bilious plans for their son and daughter, namely, that they wish to add
another fortune to the family in the form of Miss Wilmonice Astoria Scruggs,
and a title in the form of Lord Witless. But (if you didn't forget to come
back after the intermission) you found that both son ^and daughter had
plans of their own, and very different they were! Bessie was excellent as a
hen-pecked husband and Ruthie certainly did "lord it over him." And
what attractive young girl could help falling in love with a man with a voice
like Ruth's? Miss Scruggs and "Lord Witless" were both screamingly funny,
and, in fact, there is more than a word of praise for each and every one of
the main characters.
In the second act there was a Red Cross "benefit." During this act a
great excitement was caused behind the scenes when the Winter Garden
Ballet tried to change from a Turkish to a Spanish costume while James Ran-
dolph Smith-Morton lit a cigarette! Edna Ingram and "Tuna " walked Egypt
to the delight of the audience. Lulie and Lillian's song insured the fame of
both of them. The real hit of the show was the song and dance of the
two bell-hops. The audience called for several encores and, long before
they were satisfied, Emma and Dorothy had collapsed behind the scenes.
The true climax came — not when the heroine was about to rush into
the arms of the hero — but when Isabelle, in a pair of none too loose trousers,
slipped and fell on the borrowed carpet. The audience waited in breath-
less suspense, but in a few minutes she got up, much to our relief, quite whole,
in all respects.
The greatest reward for our long and tiresome hours of practicing was
— not the amount of money we took in, although that did help, but the fol-
lowing extract from a press notice:
'Nevertheless,' a musical comedy in two acts, was rendered in the
most brilliant manner by a cast that was so fine that the remark was made
by some of the audience that few two-dollar shows that come to Augusta
could equal this play as it was given by Tubman girls. "
The Following of the Faculty
On October 15th, the Faculty of the T. H. S. was "Taken Off" at Tub-
man by the Seniors. The caricatureation was fine, the girl who resembled
a certain teacher the most, being taken for that teacher. The regular routine
of a Tubman day was carried out. There w^as an assembly, a Faculty meet-
ing, and a few of the regular classes.
At assembly, "Mr. Garrett," in the person of Ruth Bishop, made the
usual remarks; that the Freshmen were doing too many stunts on the trapezes
in the "gym" ; that the driveway in front of Tubman was not a race-course,
and, therefore, the "specials" were not goals; and that the lunch room was
operating on cost basis.
Bessie White, as "Mr. Hickman," appeared in chapel, told a love story
and recited a poem and received much applause.
Ruth Pund, as "Miss Flisch, " made two or three library announce-
mrnts, and "Miss Dora," Augusta von Sprecken, made some "schedule" an-
nouncements, ending them with a list of irregular girls whom she wished to
meet immediately. Just as every one had started out and the pianist was
playing the march, "Miss Page," Isabelle Garrett, stood up and made a
hurried announcement that the Junior French books had come and she
wanted them to have them for the next class.
Next a Faculty meeting, to which the teachers came in their charac-
teristic manners. A few^ of the most studious and conscientious girls were
discussed as doing the most impossible and unheard of things, for them, as:
playing cards and drinking in the locker room, using a "pony" for their
Latin; and being on the "ragged edge" in French. Then the tardy question
was discussed. A study hall was suggested by Mabel Claire Speth, as "Miss
Ruland," and seconded by Bessie Sandler, as "Miss Comey." To this sug-
gestion, Miss Flisch answered, "I abominate study halls, and when my time
comes to hold one, I'll be sick at 2:10 and be carried to the hospital, if
Then the classes were gone through with. In Miss Dora's there was
practically no lesson. She told her pupils, after sneezing, the story of how
she and a young man had gone "autoing" this past summer in the mountains,
and the young man had had hay fever. She knew she had caught it because
every time she was around chalk, she began to sneeze. At first she left the
room to attend to some schedules, and told the class that they could recite
softly, "Roman Virgil." Of course, it was repeated in a stage whisper.
Then one girl turned over in her desk, breaking it. Miss Dora came in at
this point and told the girl to get "Mose. " Marie Sumerau, as "Mose, " en-
tered with a monkey wrench in hand. She was very much like the real Mose
with blue overalls on.
In Dorothy Brill or Miss Wood's class the ink-wells had to be filled,
and Thelma Prescott, as "Mattie, " came in to fill them.
Miss Flisch held a "current event" class and was interrupted by Edna
Ingram, as "Miss Gibbs. " She dismissed her as rapidly as possible.
Clarice Wise, as "Mr. Stemple," tiptoed around the room and used very
short chalk. He told about copper and nascent oxygen, illustrating this by
the story of Lydia and Pauline.
Olga Hargrove, as "Miss Hamilton," had a very interesting class in arith-
metic. She tried to distinguish between arithmetic cones and ice cream cones.
She couldn't work an example because a Sub-Fresh had borrowed her book
which had answers in it.
Annie Lee Cannon, as "Miss Mattox, " had a shorthand class. She dic-
tated a good many words in shorthand, such as "tenytime," "andam," "alwiz,"
"always avoid man, " "always avoid man with typewriter, " "always avoid a
man with typewriter without value."
"Miss Page " had her French class, at which time she wrote in her char-
acteristic way on the blackboard and "jabbered " out French rules, yards in
In Louise Ellas or "Miss HoUey's " geometry class a very brilliant re-
mark was made: That a moving point generated heat. Also the lesson for
the next day was assigned after the second bell had rung.
Teacher, in History: "Who was Patrick Henry?"
Pupil: "Patrick Henry was a man. He married a Miss Shelton, and
he said, Give me liberty or give me death."
Margaret: "1 wouldn't teach Science for $50."
Miss West: "1 wouldn't, either."
Mr. Garrett, answering the phone; "No, Madam, we haven't any
brains. This is Tubman High School."
Lady, on other end of the line: "Oh! I thought I had the meat market."
Miss Hamilton to Mrs. Hurst: "I opened my desk drawer with your
key and let Miss Winn in."
Teacher: "Helen, won't you join the Honor League?"
Helen: "I'll have to ask Mama."
"Stempie " says: "Fish can't weigh water, but still they have scales. "
"Why is a Tubman girl, eating in the hall, like a fish? "
'Because every time she bites she's caught! "
Miss Comey startled her English Class with the surprising remark:
'Though he slay me yet will I live! "
Mr. Stempie: "Now, Miss Sandler, can you tell us what space is? "
Bessie: "Ive got it in my head, but 1 can't say it."
Miss Wilson w^as vk^riting away with indescy^^ble haste. From the pupils
before her could be heard inaudible whispers anci ^ijickers. Finally in des-
peration she cried out: ""Hash! ! I " ''
Mabel: "Say, Elsie, there was a fight down in the lunch room the other
Elsie: ""Why, who was it?"
Mabel: '"Just a stale roll got fresh and knocked down the whole lunch."
Miss Flisch: "What form of literature existed during the period we
are now studying?"
Miss Flisch: ""What kind of poetry?"

ODDS AND ENDS
One Phase of
Rows upon rows of little brown desks and in
each desk sat, or rather squirmed, a girl. My!
such wiggling, tw^isting, turning and skrewing about
they were all doing. Could it be — yes, surely, for
on the door one might read "Study 11." Then what
was the matter? Why were they not at work, study-
ing or, at least, keeping quiet? 1 w^ondered until,
by chance, my eyes fell upon the clock — ah! there
was the reason ! It was fourteen minutes after twelve.
You don't understand how that could be the reason? Well, follow me
as I — and no more is heard as the bell rings and in a flash the study hall is
empty. Come on, we must hurry — for goodness' sake, don't stop! We
will never get there in time. And we dash at such a perilous speed down the
steps that the safety of our necks is endangered.
Bang! We land at the bottom and such bedlam — shouts and squeals
are heard. We hurry to the scene of action.
Oh, yes, of course! The lunch room. Well, now for some food. We
plunge into the crowd. Soon w^e are submerged and in looking about we
wonder if we are moving or if the crowd is. I turn to my companion — and
— oh! horrible! My face comes in violent contact with a chocolate ice cream
cone. 1 pull at my handkerchief, but find that, in the confusion, 1 have half
a buttered roll in my hand. Now, how do you suppose?
Crash! and I felt myself shoved along rapidly. 1 rush past counters
covered with cakes, cookies and fruit. I long for a taste, but 1 am com-
pelled, by the surging of the crowd, to continue. 1 can't stop — why! What's
this? Oh, here we are outdoors — up a few steps nov/ and there's another
lunch table. Now 1 will get some food. I'll shove into the crowd; I'll be
as impolite as possible; but I'll be fed! 1 will! In a moment I am almost
smothered. 1 hear myself shouting, "Two tuna fish! One meat — two tuna
fish — two — tuna fish two — tuna fish two tuna
And 1 wake up.
